Email Security

91% Of Cyberattacks Start With A Phishing Email

Phishing remains the number one attack vector, according to a new study that analyzes why users fall for these lures. The majority of cyberattacks begin with a user clicking on a phishing email. Ever wondor why users continue to fall for phishing emails?
According to a new report from PhishMe that found that 91% of cyberattacks start with a phish, the top reasons people are duped by phishing emails are curiosity (13.7%), fear (13.4%), and urgency (13.2%), followed by reward/recognition, social, entertainment, and opportunity.
“Fear and urgency are a normal part of every day work for many users,” says Aaron Higbee, co-founder and CTO of PhishMe. “Most employees are conscientious about losing their jobs due to poor performance and are often driven by deadlines, which leads them to be more susceptible to phishing.”

While information systems may use increasingly complex security measures, these updates continue to leave one significant vulnerability unaddressed: employees themselves. Email, in particular, represents one of the largest threats that employees can unintentionally pose to their network’s integrity

How we can help you protect against these spear phishing email attack email attacks?

Impersonation protect

Instant and comprehensive protection from the latest malware-less social engineering attacks, often called CEO fraud, whaling or business email compromise. Whaling attacks, business email compromise or CEO fraud are designed to trick key users, often in the finance team, into making wire transfers or other financial transactions to cyber-criminals by pretending to be the CEO or CFO in a spoofed email. Some also target those responsible for sensitive employee data, for example payroll information, which could be used for identity theft. Impersonation Protect detects and prevents these types of attack. Impersonation Protect identifies combinations of key indicators in an email to determine if the content is likely to be suspicious, even in the absence of a URL or attachment.

URL protect

Instant and comprehensive protection from spearphishing and targeted email attacks URL Protect is an advanced email security technology that protects employees against spear-phishing and targeted attacks in email, extending our existing Secure Email Gateway anti-spam and anti-virus services. URL Protect rewrites all links in all inbound emails, then scans the destination website in real-time when clicked by the user to help ensure phishing and spear-phishing websites are blocked, regardless of the client or device used to access email. It can be deployed alongside Attachment Protect which adds protection against zero-hour malicious attachments.

Attachment Protect

Next-generation attachment sandboxing for advanced protection from spear-phishing and other targeted email attacks. Targeted attacks in email have rapidly increased in volume and sophistication. Attackers are using multiple ways to infiltrate organizations in order to achieve their goals, that may include stealing data, staging ransomware demands or even a springboard attack on another company. Protecting against these unknown threats requires advanced security measures over and above standard email security filters. Attachment Protect delivers end-to-end protection against spear-phishing and targeted email attacks. It extends URL-based attack defences through URL rewriting provided by URL Protect, to include comprehensive protection against zero-hour weaponized attachments.
